As the official attire of the Swiss Army, Fox’s High Voltage shorts include an impressive array of features; a stash pocket with goggle/sunglass wipe, thigh vent zips, four pockets, an MP3 player pocket, Velcro waist adjusters, a rear stretch panel, magnetic pocket closures, a removable mesh liner with synthetic chamois, and three cup holders. The lightweight brushed polyester outer shell is incredibly comfortable, and the thigh vents make them well suited to summer riding. The material doesn’t become uncomfortably heavy when sodden, and is fast drying, so is also practical in the winter. The fit of these shorts is spot on: secure around the waist, knee length to hide the pasty thighs, with a crotch that doesn’t catch on the saddle. The chamois, which is easily removable for washing, is not the most comfortable I’ve experienced but was perfectly okay for four or five hours of saddle time. The construction seems to be sturdy and the outer shell fairly resistant to abrasion. However, if your riding involves regular intimacy with rocky surfaces these might not offer the protection you require. Ignore the cross-country description on the swing tag; these shorts are suitable for a wide variety of riding and riders. If you’re looking for a lightweight, comfortable, versatile short that looks good on and off the bike, I recommend the High Voltage. LEIF ROY
